Pioneer Valley Books is dedicated to helping beginning readers become strong readers who love books and enjoy reading. On August 1st, we had the pleasure to be on the set with The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television. The Parent-Teacher Corner on this delightful and informative morning TV show is including FOUR segments featuring Pioneer Valley Books in their fall lineup!

Today, the first episode aired. Michele Dufresne, along with Rob Monson from the National Association of Elementary School Principals, were invited to The Balancing Act to discuss ways to help new readers to be motivated to build essential reading skills. The interview is filled with valuable insights and inspiring ideas. The episode will inform and inspire – and it is topped off with an exciting visit from two wonderful little white dogs! You can watch the segment below!

Jack and Daisy -Stories by Pioneer Valley Books

Each Jack & Daisy review will be entered in a drawing for a $150 gift!

We love hearing from our customers. It's one of the things that gets us excited about the work that we do. Our website offers an exciting way for us to hear what you think about our books and teaching tools. You have the opportunity to write reviews of products of ours that you enjoy using. Reviews can be valuable tools in helping customers evaluate whether a product is right for their classroom or student

Last month, we gave our readers the chance to review the Little Elf books and Little Elf BookBuilder. We received over 100 thoughtful entries and one lucky reader (Congrats, Jennifer M!) won a $50 gift card for Pioneer Valley Books.

This month we are offering another incentive for our readers to write more reviews for us. We will enter your name into a drawing for a chance to win a $150 gift card for each review of a Jack & Daisy book that is published to our website. Each review that gets published* to the website will be entered into the drawing. Don't forget, Jack & Daisy books are all on sale this month!

Contest ends 2/9/12 and you need to have a registered account on our website. If you don't have an account yet, you can get started with a new account here: http://www.pioneervalleybooks.com/customer/account/login/

Once your account is set up, simply visit any Jack & Daisy book and click on the "Reviews" tab to leave your review. Be sure and include your first name and last name initials in the Nickname field so we can enter you into the drawing. It may take a day or two for your review to be published.

Example of how to write a review of a Little Elf Product

Rules: One winner will be selected at random to win a $150 gift card. Each published review qualifies as an additional entry. Contest closes at 12 noon (Eastern Standard Time) on Thursday, February 9, 2012. The winner will be randomly selected on February 10, 2012. Winner will be notified by email. Those not winning will not receive notification.

Contest open to United States Residents ONLY, over age 18.

*Pioneer Valley Books reserves the right to publish only those reviews which are written in clear language in an effort to evaluate the material and share information with peers.  

Privacy statement: Pioneer Valley Books is the sole owner of information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others.
